This last outburst cost Williams a game, impacting the match and tarnishing what should have been a great win and a shining moment for her competitor, Naomi Osaka.
For Hank Aaron, the backlash Serena Williams experienced after her loss in Saturday's U.S. Open final sounded all too familiar.
"Coaching is common, a lot of people are doing it, some people aren't getting called for it. I don't cheat to win, I'd rather lose!"
"You're stressing me out", Osaka quipped, somewhat sheepishly.
One of the most controversial Grand Slam finals of all time divided tennis and triggered a debate about sexism in the sport, fuelled by Williams's assertion that Ramos would not have dealt with a male player in the same way. She added that Ramos could have prevented the incident with clear communication.
'I was really happy she said that'.
"This is a bulls***, for umpires being women or men doesn't matter", Strycova told Sport.CZ, The Daily Telegraph reported.
End of an era: Volkswagen to quit iconic 'Beetle' cars in 2019
The German automaker has shifted its emphasis to SUVs and a range of still-to-come new electric cars under the I.D. nameplate. The move was supported by Adolf Hitler , who in 1937 formed the state-run Volkswagenwerk, or "The People's Car Company".
"I think the umpire, he did what was within his rights".
She repeatedly insulted the umpire, calling him a liar and a thief and demanding an apology for her cheating violation, leading him to issue a third code violation, which saw a game awarded to Osaka. It made me feel like it was a sexist remark. For me, it blows my mind.
"Me, as a woman, take a lot of warnings".
Osaka was seen crying during the ceremony, and Williams appeared to lean over and say something in her ear, presumably to console her.
The United States Tennis Association (USTA) and Women's Tennis Association (WTA), however, supported Williams' accusations that Ramos' actions were based in sexism. "And if we don't get that, there might be a potential boycott of her next match", he said.
But much of the ensuing outrage chose to ignore Williams' claims of unfair treatment.
Osaka was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1997 to a Haitian-American father and a Japanese mother, before the family moved to the USA when she was three. Others chose to point out that Williams' actions had taken away the spotlight from the 20-year-old first time victor Osaka, who became the first Japanese to win a grand slam title.
